[ODE] How to make simulation look more realistic (fast, in look)?

It's up to you to tune your variables to look good. I would suggest 
starting with a gravity of -9.8, assuming you use meters for length and 
seconds for time, because that's a good approximation to earth gravity 
"g" (which varies in the 9.8 - 9.83 range depending on where you are).
